River View Park – under bridge

Today I started the next leg of My Duwamish Adventure under the 1st Avenue South Bridge. A couple weeks ago I left off to the south of the bridge.  To my surprise on the north side is a small park – River View Park.

I noticed that a couple homeless motor homes were parked down at the park but with mace in hand I marched down to the small park. As usual, I am ok and took a few pictures of the river.

I also took a few photos of the poor folks motor homes at the little park and further down the road. At the corner of West Marginal Way and Michigan Avenue I talked to a girl panhandling.  She told me she lived in the blue RV with bicycles on the top.  Her husband is an Electrician and was starting a new job on Monday. The bicycles she has collected are to start a shop and her having that RV was a step up from the tent she was living in recently.

I am now getting a bit of a distance from the river. There is no access to the river along this stretch of the west side. A large container shipping yard and cement plant are along West Marginal Way between the trail and the Duwamish.

To see more of my Duwamish Adventure I have a directory post that links all of the pieces together.  You can find that post here – My Duwamish Adventure Directory
